voters aren't enthusiastic enough about president obama to go to the polls. he thinks voters are much more revved up about mitt romney. what do you think? >> certainly in virginia where there's a significant african-american population, it remains very much engaged. and one of the things that the obama campaign has been doing this year as it did in '08 is trying to be as visible as possible in areas where there are large numbers of african-americans though there is still a strong republican tendency. and the point of that exercise is to run as closely to romney in areas of the state where he should do exceptionally well as possible. >> jeff shapiro, thank you so much for being with us this morning. >> thank you. >>> there is a reason why virginia is a battle ground state. it's close race. but the president is inching forward. this is the average of recent polls. as of last week, more likely voters in virginia would choose president obama 50% to 44%. a new softer mitt romney is emerging on the campaign trail because of these numbers in part. maybe compassionate conservatism is back. al
it. according to the latest quinnipiac university/new york times/cbs news poll of likely voters, it's actually related -- >> no, it's not. >> president obama leads romney by 10 percentage points in ohio. no republican has lost and then won the presidency. the president is up nine points in florida and has opened up a 12-point lead in pennsylvania. in the same poll, president obama leads mitt romney in his handling of the economy in all three states. 51% of polled voters say the president would do the better job. >> okay, let's go back to the last slide, guys. and mark halperin, let's talk to you. i know you agree with me that the media is liberal. guess what? republicans have somehow managed to win despite that media liberal bias. you've said it repeatedly on this show. so despite that fact, mitt romney is not getting crushed in all three of these states because of the liberal media bias. what's happening there, and why is he losing so badly, especially in ohio? >> well, it's very unlikely the president will win those states by those margins, but these numbers are not out of line dr

, president obama leads mitt romney in his ndlif e ecomy ill estat. 51% of polled voters say the president would do the better job. >> okay, let's go back to the last slide, guys. and mark halperin, let's talk to you. i know you agree with me that the media is liberal. guess what? republicans have someh managed to win dpitehat a raas you've said it repeatedly on this show. so despite that fact, mitt romney is not getting crushed in all three of these states because of the liberal media bias. what's hapning the, and why is he lingoba especially in oh? >> well, it's very unlikely the president will win those states by those margins, but these numbers are not out of line dramatically with private polling and some other public polling. i think the biggest problem rit now remains him. he's not driving asient mee. the president does -- says something, the republicans get all excited about it. they treat it like a gaffe. they'll talk about it for a day. and then they'll move on to something else. the biggest danger to me right now for the republican party are two things. one is that you look athe
of the most recent polls in these two key battleground states. look at ohio first. likely voters choice for president you see it right there, john, 50% for president obama, 44% for romney. that's a nice lead for obama in the key battleground state of ohio. if you take a look at florida, you see right now in our poll of polls the average among the most recent polls in florida, 49% for obama, 45% for romney. the question to you, john, can romney win without winning ohio and florida? >> in a word, wolf. i took a walk over here to show. the answer is no. you just mentioned ohio and florida. states the president carried four years ago. states governor romney very much needs to win this time. go to the electoral map to show you why. final six weeks, 237 electoral votes strong or leaning the president's way. these are the toss up states. the golden states. forget the rest of them. if the president can keep that lead and carry florida, if the president can keep that lead and carry ohio, the race is to 270, wolf, that would be in two words game over. >> gloria, if you look at the strength that t
. the obama campaign has spent months and millions trying to convince voters that mitt romney is unethical. >> he won't release his tax returns before 2010. >> unprepared. >> my opponent and his running mate are new to foreign policy. >> unattached to reality. >> my thinking is maybe you haven't gotten around a lot. >> with all those alleged problems, surely he has no chance of prevailing against president obama in the debates, right? well, not according to the obama campaign. >> mitt romney i think has an advantage because he's been through 20 of these debates in the primaries over the last year. >> reporter: the romney team says president obama is weak on foreign policy. >> what we do not see is steady consistent american leadership. >> reporter: weak on the economy. >> he's over his head. and he's swimming in the wrong direction. >> reporter: and just plain weak overall. >> the president today threw in the white flag of surrender again. >> reporter: with all those weaknesses, surely he would be easy to beat in a debate, right? oh, no. not according to mitt romney. >> he's the president
. as you said, i remember during past elections, every losing candidate has had this. the hillary voters in the 2008 primary had their own circle. they were convinced that the support for obama was way overstated. you were totally right about 2004, the 2002. like every election this happens, but the weird how this really happened in the last week was kind of remarkable. >> isn't this -- i think this is sort of a subset of a larger trend on the right? it's been going on for a really long time. there's a sort of combination of self-pity and sort of feeding the idea that they are victims of this massive conspiracy by the left to lie about everything and that they are truly the majority. i've been calling it the fun house mirror. i love your characterization of it even more. but there is this notion that everything is a lie. climate change is a lie. the idea that liberals are just lying to you all the time. this distrust of media, distrust of numbers, distrust of data. everything is a lie. >> it's also funny because a lot of the paul ryan supporters, it's not politics. it's math. liberals ta
" magazine, and mitt romney has done plenty of these things too. this is not a barack obama or mitt romney thing. >> i'm just asking about the timing. >> what they're trying do is reach independent voters who haven't made their mind up yet and they think they may get them and female voters, get them through "the view." the timing makes it look more like he is focused on campaigning first and foremost than being president first and foremost and has opened him up to considerable criticism from republicans about, you know, how do you have it time on your schedule to do a midday talk show and to not sit down with some of these people. i just return to jeff's point, it's because he understands that any meetings here are fraught with the fact that we are exactly six weeks away from a very contentious election and he doesn't want to go down that road. you can debate whether that's the right or wrong thing for the president to do but it is the political thing that is being done currently. >> quickly, we want to talk about ohio, because "the washington post" on your battlegrounds you've moved ohio
which some have cast as romney's make or break moment. he urges the voters to consider mr. obama's actions not his words. >> you can be extraordinarily eloquent and describe all the wonderful things you can do, but when you cut through the words, you can look at the record. and when you can see policies that have not created the jobs america needs, then you know it's time to choose a new leader. >> reporter: president obama even tried to turn a stumble into a stinging critique. >> i want to see us export more jobs, export more products, excuse me. i was -- i was channeling my opponent there for a second. >> reporter: and earlier this week, mitt romney told me he's not worried about the polls, the polls go up and they go down. but savannah, where they are right now does begin to matter. beginning today as many as 30 states are voting with absentee or early voting. iowa, the latest state to vote, early voting there begins today. >> all right. peter alexander in the battleground of virginia, thank you very much. >>> let us get a check of the rest of the morning's top stories. >> goo
tried to connect with voters in a new ad in which he looked directly at the camera, president obama is out with his own doing the very same thing. >> too many americans are struggling to find work in today's economy. too many of those who are working are living paycheck to paycheck. >> today i believe that as a nation we are moving forward again. we have much more to do, to get folks back to work and make the

as a trade cheater are aimed at voters in northern ohio and around the great lakes where the auto workers are, but obama has been running his own ads hitting china, so i think they kind of neutralize one another. we had a report this morning that durable goods orders have dropped the most since january 09. orders for motor vehicles and motor vehicle parts dropped 11% in august. whatever obama did to bail out the auto industry, those people working in the industries in the northern ohio are the ones affected by a figure like that. and i don't quite understand why romney isn't going directly at obama's economic record, while obama has been president. connell: because in that part of the world, in ohio, and particularly where they were both yesterday. they are going to be in virginia today. but they were both in ohio yesterday, and obama is leading big there if you believe the latest polls. yesterday there was an argument that hey some of the democrats are being more sampled in some of these polls. what do you think about that? >> if a poll in ohio says that obama is ahead by 8 or 10 points, i t
of voters. >> bill: that issue has penetrated down to where people know and think about it. >> definitely. in part because the obama campaign has tried to make sure it penetrating. >> bill: and then you have daddy days, if you only release one year that could be a fluke so you could release 12 years. >> right. he obviously made the calculation that releasing more than two years would just cause problems, because he has a very complicated portfolio for sure. >> bill: right. conda is joining us from mobile alabama. >> caller: good morning. i wanted to make a comment about president obama not meeting with the leaders. i don't understand why it is a big deal -- i am fed up even with the liberal media always harping on what ht obama doesn't do. what would be the point of him meeting with them at this point? he does communicate with them. and by the way my name is spelled with a k. >> bill: i'm sorry, peter, it's konda with a k. we will correct that. i do understand also he is president of the united states. it is the general assembly and historically when the president goes to
